Memorizing medical/scientifc word part adamant-

The goal of Struggling Student's Memory Guide is to develop ways to use association and mnemonic memory techniques, instead of rote memorization, to remember educational information we can use for a lifetime.

blue emboldened words are common or college terms that can be used for word association purposes.

reddish brown emboldened words are medical terms that should be looked up in a medical dictionary for their figurative meanings.

Word part from High Speed Memory Techniques for Medical Terminology.

adamant-, adamanto- from Gr. adamantinos, not subdued, means "exceedingly hard". [diamond, adamant, lit. that which is exceedingly hard, fig. inexorable; intransigent, adamantine, lit. very hard characteristic]

No memory story was necessary for this word part's memorization.
